Collingwood v GWS tips, prediction & odds; AFL Rd 4 preview 2021
Welcome to our Collingwood v GWS tips, best bets and odds analysis ahead of their AFL round 4 clash at the MCG on Saturday night.
The Magpies ($1.18) are the short-priced favourite to win this clash, with the injury hit GWS ($4.90) facing an uphill battle. The $1.90 line has been set at the juicy 27.5 mark at Australian bookmakers, which looks generous.
Collingwood is coming off an agonising one-point loss to Brisbane, after the Lions snatched a victory after the siren courtesy of a Zac Bailey goal, which gave them a 1-2 record in 2021.
EARLY GAME: Bulldogs v Lions preview and tips
The Giants are yet to record a win this season as they confront life without boom forward Jeremy Cameron, with losses to St Kilda, Melbourne and Fremantle. They are also being forced to endure one of the longest injury lists, with Lachie Whitfield, Phil Davis and Stephen Coniglio just some of the A grade talent on the sidelines.
GWS has called up veteran ruckman Shane Mumford to combat Magpies ace Brodie Grundy, while Jake Riccardi, Jeremy Finlayson and debutant Conor Stone have also been included. They come in at the expensive of Coniglio, Davis, Matt de Boer, Nick Shipley and Matt Flynn.
The Magpies have made just the one change to the team that lost to the Lions, including Beau McReery for his first actual game after he was the unused medical sub. The Magpies have dropped Tyler Brown.

Collingwood v GWS tips
Our AFL betting expert has done the form, assessed the teams and here are our Collingwood v GWS tips:
Mason Cox to kick 3+ goals
Collingwood’s giant forward has looked good in 2021, without kicking a bag of goals. We think this could the match, with the Giants missing defensive lynchpin Davis. Cox is offering some value at $3.40 to kick three plus goals and his accuracy make him a solid bet.
Taylor Adams to have 30+ disposals
Former Giants player Taylor Adams has become a prolific, tough midfielder for the Magpies and we think this match suits him, against a young outfit. Adams has been a little up-and-down this season, but this is a must-win game for the Magpies and we can see him gathering plenty of the sherrin.
GWS +27.5 (line betting)
The Giants and Magpies have played thriller after thriller in recent years, with most games coming down to the wire. While we ultimately think the Magpies will win this game, the Giants +27.5 at $1.90 is a tempting proposition and one that will bookend our same game multi.
Collingwood v GWS prediction 10/4/21
Collingwood has got more experience than their opponent and if they can keep Toby Greene in check, should have too many weapons. The Magpies were disappointing in the second-half against the Lions and we expect them to respond strongly. However, we do think the Giants will put up a strong effort and the game will be closer than people expect. Our final Collingwood v GWS prediction? Magpies by 19 points.
